on your debt. well we have 2 1/2 trillion dollars coming into the treasury every year in tax revenue. we can use that tax revenue to pay the interest on our debt. therefore, we will not default. all this talk about being a deadbeat nation, that belies the fact that we have never, and will never default on our obligations. the obligation being to pay the interest on the debt. we're not a deadbeat nation and we're not going to default, period. yes. period. martha: comes down to the big question whether or not you will cut spending in order to not default on your debt. and that brings us to a larger question or one of the larger questions, which is whether or not we will be downgraded if we don't become more responsible with our spending? >> interesting you should raise that issue, martha, because 45 minutes ago, fitch, the ratings agency said, if we have another delay in raising this debt ceilingsing, if we have this political standoff again just like we had in 2011, fitch says we may be downgraded. his name is david reilly. he is managing director at fitch and he said if it is just like 2

's unacceptable for some republicans in congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage simply because they refuse to let tax rates go up on wealthiest americans. >> sean: gun at the head of the american people and republicans hostage takers and mr. president, comments like that are responsible for the gridlock in washington and whether or not mr. president, you like to believe it, you're to blame. and with us, stuart varney and co-host of "the five", dana perino, it never stops. >> at least he's consistent? good point. >> there are -- when there's a saying, you know, don't believe your own hype. i also think that in some ways presidents should not read their own press. there are always going be to be critics and i remember george w. bush did not spend a lot of times reading the nasty things that people said about him. he would say, look, this is where i think we need to go, this is a policy and help me get there. and he would try to bring in people from the other side to get that done. that wasn't always possible and people didn't always agree with him, but that was a bert approach and got more d
more revenue, through tax reform, by closing loopholes in our tax code for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it is fair, for example, to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down life heavy saving research so the that a multimillionaire investor can pay less in tax rates than a secretary. they don't think it is smart to protect endless corporate loopholes and tax breaks for the wealthiest americans, rather than rebuild our roads and our schools, invest in our workers skills or help manufacturers bring jobs back to america. so they want us to get our books in order in a balanced way where everybody pulls their weight, everyone does their part. th

trillion debt because we tax too little. it's because we spend too much. >> shannon: that's the debate we heard during the fiscal cliff negotiations and we are going to hear in the weeks and months, as you have outlined. all during the fiscal cliff, all the polling showed that the general public thought this was the fault of the house republicans, primarily the house side and republicans in congress as a whole. have you headed up the republican national committee, you know what it is like to sell a message to the american people. why are the republicans not doing well? they are saying, we are trying to put on the brakes and we are selling out our grandkids. but the public, when polled, blames republicans for this? >> one of the things you learn in politics, sometimes the other side gets the bumper sticker and you get the essay. the democratic-controlled senate has not papassed a budget in 3 years. the house republican vtion passed budgets when they have controlled-- the american people are never told that. why? republicans don't talk about it enough -- >> shannon: why not? >> well, becaus

was on the fiscal cliff package on taxes. and that is not going unnoticed by many gop critics like the "washington post" today, whose editorial basically said that this latest proposal by the republicans is very reasonable and that the president and the senate would be wise to support it. you know, listen, the republican party is coming out of this last election as a broken party. i mean, admittedly they are. getting them unified right now is a challenge. but i think what they did yesterday is an important step. yesterday, they had to raise the debt ceiling. i don't think there was anything getting in the way of that. they never wanted to do that, but it was an important first step. i think the president was hoping and banking on the fact that the party would stay fractured and that it would be kind of a strength for him. but i think it was a good move by the republicans. >> rick: kristy, trey has been look forward to your response. >> i've been looking forward to giving it. there is several problems. one you already mentioned which is that it's unconstitutional. but there is more than that. the s
